Netflix streaming problems on ATV3 (Refurb)

Lately I have had big problems with streaming anything on Netflix. Started about a week and a half ago and video stops and buffers. I have 20+ megs cable internet so I know it is not that. To see if it was Netflix, I streamed some stuff on my Xbox and had no problems. I also went from using WiFi to plugging directly into the router and that still didnt fix. I restarted the ATV and still problems. Anyone else have issues like this.. Thanks in advance.

Yes don't worry you're not alone. There is a network connectivity problem going on with the Apple TV, whether they're admitting it or not. Lots of comments/threads over at the Apple support forums about this.

I occasionally have this problem with Netflix, but in my case rebooting the ATV3 has solved it every time. But yeah, it's annoying.

It may not be networking issue. I would try other streaming with ATV such as Air play, other sources sucah as youtube app etc... If only the netflix has buffering issues. it means that the netflix software is at fault.

Only n00bs will jump to the conclusion it's a network interface issue with out testing other software or network related features first.

Trust me, it's network. Happens on both Netflix and iTunes streaming. Rebooting the device doesn't help. Lots of discussion happened over on the Apple discussion boards.

It seems like everything else streams fine... YouTube, previews and even replays on the MLB app. It wouldn't surprise me if it was a Netflix problem. They really just need to open up the ATV to developers to make everything better.
